This self-fertile olive from northern Spain is used for both its oil and as a table olive. Olives are easy-to-grow, rugged plants that tolerate dryness both in soil moisture and humidity and a wide variation in temperature from just below freezing to the triple digits. To successfully flower plants, they need lots of sun and a period of 30-45°F at night on a consistent basis during the winter. ‘Arbequina’ is a great olive for pots as it flowers at an early age, often when no more than a foot in height, and produces an abundance of small, dark, tasty olives. As with all olives, 'Arbequina' olive production is best in areas with chilly winters. However, 'Arbequina' is a subtropical variety that has been documented to produce fruit as far south as Sarasota, Florida.
Olives need full sun and lots of heat to prosper. As natives of the Mediterranean, well-drained soil is an absolute must; trees will decline and die in areas that are too moist.
